Otterheart takes a look at Warriors and the hit Broadway musical Hamilton.
Hi! My name is Otterheart, and this is my first post. I am a huge warriors fan, and a huge Hamilton fan. So, I present to you: Warrior Cats as Hamilton characters! *This only includes cats from the first Arc*
1. Firepaw as Alexander Hamilton in ‘Alexander Hamilton’
You all saw this one coming, right? These two characters have so much in common. They are in unfamiliar territory, and are committed to being the best they can be.
2. Spottedleaf as Angelica in ‘Satisfied’
This one is sort of cliche: Spottedleaf loves Firepaw, but she can’t have him because she is a medicine cat. She is also strong- willed and will readily stand up for what she believes in.
3. Tigerclaw as King George in ‘You’ll be back’
This one took some thinking, but there is a connection. Tigerclaw, just like King George, wants to rule over The colonies/Thunderclan. However, due to George Washington and Alexander Hamilton( Bluestar and Fireheart), He has to accept defeat. Of course, Tigerclaw then decides to take over Shadowclan. That can also be seen as King George returning to his throne.
4. Bluestar as George Washington in ‘ Meet me inside’ and ‘One last time’
Bluestar and George Washington are alike in many ways. They are the leader of their colony/clan. I totally see the “Call me son one more time” happening between Fireheart and Bluestar, especially when Bluestar starts to lose faith in Starclan. I also feel like ‘One last time’ would be playing in the background as Bluestar dies.
5. Greypaw as Laurens in ‘My shot’
Greypaw and Firepaw are besties, just like how Alexander Hamilton and John Laurens are besties. My main reason for choosing Laurens for Greypaw is Laurens dies halfway through the musical. Greypaw(stripe) also gets taken away in the beginning of the ‘new prophecy arc’.
6. Longtail as Thomas Jefferson
This one was pretty simple. Longtail immediately dislikes Firepaw, since he was a kittypet. Just like that, Thomas Jefferson and Hamilton have a mutual hate for each other, always finding ways to attack each other.
7. Bramblepaw as Philip Hamilton
Bramblepaw was apprenticed to Fireheart (Alexander Hamilton), and that eventually led to them having a father-son relationship. Bramblepaw(claw) believed in the same things Fireheart did, and that is the same relationship Philip and Alex had. However, Philip died because of that, and Brambleclaw became deputy and eventually leader. These two characters are the same yet opposites, as Brambleclaw followed Firestars beliefs while Philip fought for them.
Thank you for reading! As I said before, this is my first article, so I apologize for any mistakes in advance. Thank you and have a wonderful day!
